Kerala bar bribery case: Congress is as equal a culprit as KM Mani

The Congress is as blemished as KM Mani in the bar bribery case. As a last attempt, the government brought Kapil Sibal to defend Mani in High Court, but even that couldn’t prevent the inevitable. Immediately after the High Court opined that it was leaving the matter of resignation to Mani’s conscience, the first and second lines of UDF leadership stood firm and demanded Mani’s resignation. In effect, the Congress was waiting for something like this when nothing was working in their advantage. Now, a tainted Mani might not get support from either the CPI (M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) or the BJP who have been opposing him, although both did show interest in him being their ally not long ago. In any case, the people are watching, and it is not easy to fool them so easily. The writing is on the wall, and Chandy will struggle to change things around once more.
